We know how complicated, time-consuming, and expensive it is to run
successful chess tournaments.
Dealing with lost or illegible score sheets, resolving conflicts, producing bulletins, and attracting sponsorships are just a few of the challenges you face. The role of tournament organizer has never been an easy one - until now!
By working with technical advisors and chess experts, we have designed a system that meets your needs. MonRoi’s system automatically collects chess matches. Players quickly and easily enter their games electronically using wireless, hand-held, tamper-proof MonRoi Personal Chess Managers. A simple tap of the stylus instantly and accurately records each move and transmits the data wirelessly to your Professional Tournament Manager (PTM).
Our wireless Professional Tournament Manager is an easy to use, secure, and cost-effective way to run live chess broadcast at every level.
Note: The MonRoi system does not generate Swiss pairings, and imports pairings from any excel or text file.
The Professional Tournament Manager incorporates both hardware and software components. Hardware consists of a wireless hub able to communicate with hundreds of Personal Chess Manager devices at distances of over 300 meters. The wireless hub is connected to a Windows-based computer, which runs the MonRoi Professional Tournament Manager software. The computer can be further connected to the Internet through any cable or wireless network, allowing for a seamless transmission of chess games to the MonRoi’s server.
The primary transmission is via on-site high-speed Internet communications, provided by the tournament organizers. Our portal servers have mirroring, back-up, dedicated 100MB Internet port, 2,000 GB monthly transfer volume, and advanced configuration tools which allow for traffic monitoring and distribution.
MonRoi Live Broadcasting Minimum Requirements:
The computer managing your live chess broadcast is best placed in the tournament room, with no metal obstacles.
Transcribing games manually from paper score sheets to a computer is a painstakingly slow and expensive process. Paper score sheets are easily misplaced, often illegible, and frequently pose communication problems due to language barriers. MonRoi’s solution eliminates all of these hassles and saves you time and money!
In addition to saving on transcription and reporting costs, you save substantial storage and shipping fees, as well as the set-up costs associated with traditional tracking methods. MonRoi’s pocket-sized system is portable and sets up quickly and easily- simply plug it in and play! Our wireless system also eliminates the liability incurred by injuries caused by cables running across your tournament floor.
MonRoi’s system is easy to use, even if you have no prior computer knowledge. Users who were initially skeptical about this new technology were amazed by its simplicity and accuracy, as well as by the advantages it offers.
The MonRoi system was used at over 100 chess tournaments to date, including the World Youth Chess Championship, the World Open, the US Championship, the Canadian Championship, the ECU Individual, the GibTelecom Chess Festival, the Montreal International Category 16 etc.
